Bucket List Golf

This week’s blog is a guide to some of the best golf courses from around the world that we recommend having on your bucket list. There are some spectacular golf courses out there and if you are a discerning golfer you will have identified the ones that you want to have the opportunity to play but we recommend these brilliant courses as a round on one of these courses is truly unforgettable.

Both of the courses at Fairmont St Andrew’s are incredible and each deserve a place on this list and it isn’t hard to see why. The Kittocks course is situated on elevated ground next to the cliff-tops and boasts a fantastic and dramatic design that is a brilliant test of golf. The course features two man-made lakes but the layout of the course honours the tradition of golf at St Andrew’s with two double greens and many deep pot bunkers. As you play your round, you will meander along the Fife coastline where you can enjoy beautiful views over St Andrews which just adds to the brilliant feel of this course. Beware of this course, you may be eased in for the first few holes but when you get to the par-5 5th hole, you never really look back. The Torrance course is a testing one at 7,230 yards from the back tees. The course played host to The Open in 2010 and is a top-quality course right from the welcome that you receive in the clubhouse to each and every one of the well-manicured greens. The course is built on the cliff tops and whilst you are enjoying your round you can enjoy stunning views over the North Sea. Like its sister course, you have a gentle start, but the course soon becomes trickier. With a professional welcome at the clubhouse and great service as well as two beautifully manicured courses which both will provide you with an excellent test of golf, it is no surprise that we recommend that Fairmont St Andrews Golf Club has a place on your golfing bucket list.

Next, is the brilliant Albatros at Le Golf National which is considered to be one of the best championship courses in Europe and so it is no surprise that the course will host the 2018 Ryder Cup. The course boasts brilliantly fast greens, undulating fairways and links-style bunkers which makes this course a strategic challenge of golf. During your round here, you will need to use every single club in your bag in order to score as well as you can. The finale of this course is very impressive, and the greens are surrounded by water hazards which makes it a fantastic and challenging end to the course and is sure to mean some last-minute drama at the Ryder Cup later this year. It is not surprising that this is a recommendation of ours for your golfing bucket list and so make sure that you book your golf break soon as possible as we are sure that this course will be getting a lot of attention this year…

Fancourt Golf Club’s Links course is another one that we highly recommend to you and is arguably South Africa’s premier leisure resort which is situated in the heart of the Garden Route. The course is situated on over 1,500 acres of lush African countryside and boasts the majestic Outeniqua Mountains as the perfect backdrop. This Gary Player course has a unique feel to it and is a magnificent round of golf with some amazing wildlife and scenery to enjoy during your round if you can pull your eyes away from the course! There are no easy holes on the course and the rough is severe and penal, if you’re a high handicapper this may not be the best course for you but is one that you can aspire to play.

The K Club is widely considered to be one of the most opulent golf resorts in Ireland so it isn’t hard to see why we have added this to our list of golf courses that should be on your bucket list. The Palmer Ryder course at K Club is a stern test of golf at 7,337 yards from the back tees. As you play your round here, you will have to take on many different challenges successfully in order to finish the round with a good scorecard. These challenges range from the vast number of water hazards to strategically placed bunkers and fast greens. This course should not be underestimated and even if you don’t score well, a trip to The K Club is a brilliant one with first-class service and facilities as well as a course with a fantastic layout and stunning views. There are some very intimidating holes which you must tackle carefully including the 16th which is a very long par-5 at just under 600 yards from the blue tees and boasts a double dogleg where you must navigate your ball around the water and bunkers as well as many trees before you get to approach the green which is protected on two sides by the River Laffey and is difficult to reach successfully. This is a brilliant course with some unique and interesting holes as well as a lovely clubhouse to enjoy a drink and meal in after.

Last, but certainly not least, is Real Club Valderrama which has hosted many championship golfing events since its opening and has justifiably been ranked as the number one course in Europe. It is always in immaculate condition and boasts a great design but is one that challenges even the best of golfers with many tight holes and hazards to navigate your way around. The closing holes are always described as being very tough but if you choose your tee option wisely then you should be able to get a fairly good scorecard. Although the green fee is a little expensive here, it is more than worth the money to get the chance to play on this world-renowned course.

We hope that you have taken a note of the courses you would be most interested in adding to your golfing bucket list and that you consider booking a golf break to one of them and the fantastic hotels that are nearby to these brilliant courses…

There is quite a wide field of entrants for the Open Championships and you can apply to be given the chance to play alongside some of the world’s greatest players. Carnoustie Championship course is a natural seaside links course and is one of the toughest courses in Britain and Ireland. With strategically placed formidable bunkers, sloping fairways and fast greens, this a very challenging course and when the wind is up you must play cautiously to avoid losing a ball to one of the cavernous bunkers.

The 2018 European Tour has announced many different dates and competitions that are to take place all over the world from South Africa to China to the US and Scotland. There are several Major Championships throughout the year including the Masters Tournament in April, the U.S Open in June, The Open Championship in July and the PGA Championship in August.

With difficult pot bunkers, manicured fairways or lush Bermuda grass and tiered greens, this is an enjoyable but tricky course. The course follows the contours of two plateaux with the fairways cut through olive groves, lakes and the villas of the Residences. As you play the course, you wind through indigenous olive and carob trees and experience some breath-taking scenery including a dramatic ravine along the course from which you can see across the Mediterranean Sea. This ravine can make play difficult, as during the 7th hole you must travel your ball across the 130-metre gorge. This is quite a hilly course but with our packages, a buggy is included to make your life easier and you can still see out across the stunning landscape.

This is a truly breath-taking course and many of the most memorable holes from the course run alongside or across the central ravine. After your round, enjoy some time in the extensive clubhouse which overlooks the 18th green and is somewhere which is perfect to enjoy a well-earned beverage and a bite to eat. This course is a spectacular one and one that tops off the luxurious and exclusive Aphrodite Hills Resort perfectly.

17 of the Best Scottish Golf Courses

The best Scottish golf courses are difficult to narrow down. As the birthplace of the sport, it’s no wonder that some of the world’s top courses can be found in Scotland. From rolling hills and postcard-like scenery to impeccable green and famous courses, Scotland has it all. Planning a trip to this golfer’s paradise? Fantastic, you’re going to want to determine which courses you’ll choose.

The decision won’t be easy, but here are 17 of the best Scottish golf courses to get you started.

New Course at St. Andrews

St. Andrews is one of Scotland’s most famous courses. And, while the old course garners a lot of attention, it’s the new course that is really impressing players. Like the old course, it runs along the coastline, offering sea views and a peak at the steeples jutting from the town below.

The new course is slightly more difficult than the old and it goes clockwise so that much of the challenge is on the left. The course was built in 1895 by Tom Morris, and is a classic links course with challenging green and fairways.

St Andrews

Jubilee Course

Also located at St. Andrews, the Jubilee course is one of Scotland’s favorites. It has a par 72 and is 6742 yards. This third championship course is considered to be one of the most challenging links in the area.

Jubilee was built in 1897 and was originally meant for beginners and women golfers. However, players noticed that its location was prime, and they decided to make it a championship course in 1988.

Golfers play this course in an out-and-back way, although there are no shared fairways or double greens. It’s full of par threes, has gorgeous views of the bay, and offers a landscape with modest dunes. This course has been the home of quite a few amateur championships.

Old Course St. Andrews

And finally, the Old Course at St. Andrews must make the list. It is 6721 yards and has a par 72. This course is the oldest and most famous in the entire world, which makes it a must-visit no matter what. What’s even better is that this Scottish golf course is public so that anyone can have the experience.

Its best-known features are the Hell Bunker, Swilcan Bridge, and the fact that it has double greens. In fact, only four holes have their own green. The course can be played in any direction and it also is home to 112 bunkers, all which have their own history. On Sundays, the course actually shuts down so that it can ‘rest.’ Although sometimes, it is opened as a park area for the public.

Muirfield Gullane

The links here are privately owned and used for The Open Championship on rotation. The course has seen a lot of famous winners like Phil Mickelson, Jack Nicklaus, Henry Cotton, and Ernie Els.

The course sports a links that is a little different from the norm. Instead of the usual layout, Muirfield was the first to establish two loops with nine holes each. One loop is counterclockwise while the other goes clockwise.

Royal Dornoch Course

North Berwick West Links 

Golf has been played on this links land since the early 17th century. However, it was in 1832 that the official golf club was created. While there was some dispute about the land in the beginning, the course eventually took shape. Since then, this true links course has been the site of many Championship events. Golfers love the course beach and the challenge that the sea brings in at high tide. There are even walls in the middle of the fairway that make it even more of a challenge.

This course has three holes that are most well known; The 13th ‘Pit,’ the 14th ‘Perfection,’ and the 15th, ‘Redan.’ With the course running along the outskirts of the town, players get to straddle two worlds throughout the game.


This course is located right on the coastline and is made up of three links courses, a 5-star hotel, and a golf academy. The land was originally used as an airbase during the first world war. After the war ended, the first two courses were built on the property.

During World War II the course was used again for military purposes. However, in 1949, the Ailsa course was constructed here. The Kintyre course was opened in 2001 and the Arran course opened in 2002.

Across the courses, many championships have been won by some of golf’s biggest names like Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus.
